Announcing a new quarterly peer-reviewed journal

Goals: First, to provide a forum for communication of scientific and
technical issues associated with the analysis, management, and
visualization of biological information at the molecular level.
COMPUTATIONAL BIOLOGY will accept papers on the computational,
mathematical and statistical aspects of molecular biology.  This
includes sequence comparison, analysis and searching; DNA and protein
sequence determination; DNA topological structure; protein structure;
RNA secondary and tertiary structure; genetic mapping; physical
mapping; molecular evolution including phylogenetic reconstructions;
parallel methods of computation; design and implementation of
biological databases; biological expert system design and use;
application of artificial intelligence methods to biological systems.

Second to provide a forum for the exchange of problems and methods
between and within the biological and the mathematical/computational
communities.  This will be accomplished by soliciting mini-reviews in
diverse areas, and by providing a forum for the informal exchange of
theories and experimental approaches.

The growth of molecular biology has produced large amounts of complex
data consequently creating challenging new problems in the analysis,
interpretation and handling of this data.  The mounting volume and
richness of data require multidisciplinary and quantitative approaches
for analysis and interpretation.
